Backstage News on Why Triple H Isn’t Offering Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards a Deal

– The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards won’t be back at the next set of WWE NXT tapings and they aren’t going to be offered a contract.

Apparently Triple H didn’t want t sign them after their tryout because of their size. The feeling is they are loaded with guys who aren’t big that can go so the mentality coming out of these tryout camps is that WWE is looking for guys who can headline WrestleMania in five or ten years.

A lot of people went to bat for Richards and Edwards with the feeling they should get a deal and several people pushed for them to go straight to the main roster. It’s said Triple H made the decision not to sign them after the NXT tapings where they lost to The Ascension.

    Some people need to see the bigger picture here
    Why would WWE want 3 guys of the same guy when they’ve already got the best version in Daniel Bryan?
    I’m sorry but Eddie and Davey are carbon copies of Bryan and wrestling would be boring if everyone on the roster was the same.

    Look at the NXT roster, every character is different and no two guys have the same moveset but Eddie and Davey are both just D-Bryan lite and will never grow out of that shadow.

    HHH doesn’t know his a$$ from his elbow! He made a career out of riding the top stars coat tails (Michaels) and marrying into the family business, what does he know about talent?

    So basically we’re going to see more and more bulked up bodybuilder types with limited wrestling ability over actual talented peerformers over the next few years?…. How exciting *sarcasm*. And this ladies and gents, is why we’ll never see guys like Barrett, Ziggler and so on in the main event where they deserve to be.

    …Says the guy who probably never misses a show. If you want vanilla midgets in the spotlight, go watch ROH before they go bankrupt. They need you.

  • And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the future of WWE you can expect with HHH running things. The same guy who personally “handpicked” Orton, Batista and Sheamus to be top guys. Vince 2.0. Hope you enjoy it.
